    Newspaper Archives

    Some of the archives I'm listing are free, some are not, as usual you get what you pay for pretty much. The Missouri search site listed is a very good one and it is free. I went through and deleted a bunch out of my files that didn't work very well.

    Please add any more sources if anyone has them.

    You're Welcome Heart !!! I only wish all States would do what Missouri did. One thing that's good is you can find stories on that Missouri site for all states by pressing search, then all publications, and then putting in terms such as...

    Indiana search goes on.....
    Florida police are searching...
    man has been missing from Ohio...
    Michigan last seen wearing.....
    Washington boy is described as...

    well, you get the point. I think all States should make these available for free.

    adding this one in, if you scroll down, it has a whole list of Georgia newspapers, how searchable it is I don't know yet, but I found it on a listing that said search archives for historical articles and photographs.

    This site is actually fun to just look at even if you're not searching for anything in particular. Louisiana....

    Great resources Hollow.
    I came up with an idea of sharing resources but I don't know how others would respond.
    I thought maybe we could pick a bookmarking site like the one at Yahoo or http://del.icio.us/, if we set up an account and made the password available, then we could all add our resources to the site. We could then build a large database of resources for the cold cases and missing and unidentified, and we could update it as we found new sites. That way everybody could have access to the resources and it would give newbies who wanted to participate more a place to start. Also it would mean that a case wouldn't have to sit until the right person with the right resources came along.
    The way it works is you enter the url of the site you want to bookmark, and add some key words to help make it searchable. I set up an acct at del.icio.us and have been using it regularly for my sites and have found it to be really helpful.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Maybe we could set up a site somewhere, and post the user name and password in the parking lot or jury room, so that it is accessible to all members, but still somewhat protected.
    I really do find it to be a big help in that it is searchable, and if I ever have another computer crash I know that the info is still easily accessible to me. And it saves space on my computer.
